Get Personal: Three Simple Ways To Make Your Home Feel Unique

13:17

There's something wonderful about walking into someone's home and just being able to feel how much of their personality has gone into it. Every inch of the place seems like it was designed to be a home for that particular person. On the flip side, we all know that feeling when you walk into a house, and it feels like a showroom. Everything is bland and seems to lack any personality. Nothing can make you feel less at home than feeling like you've accidentally wandered into Ikea. A lot of people think that to be able to create a home that feels unique and personal; you need to spend endless amounts of time and money. Fortunately, that's not the case. Here are a few simple ways that you can make your house feel a little more like a home.

Fill it with memories

Of course, you're going to create memories anywhere you live, no matter what. But why not display those memories around the house? Going into someone's home and seeing that there are no pictures of friends or family can actually be pretty unnerving. On the other hand, there's nothing quite like the joy that you can bring to a house by covering it in fun, personal memories. Get creative with how you do it as well. Maybe choose a particular feature wall to fill up with pictures. You can even set aside a space for a whiteboard or blackboard so that visitors can write little notes on there for you to find.

Go bespoke

While it may not be the cheapest option out there, there really is nothing like bespoke furniture to make your home unique. Being able to have something that's entirely personal as the centerpiece of any room is a great way to remind you that you're not just in any house. You're in your very own home. This doesn't mean that every single piece of furniture in your house has to have been specially designed for you. But a statement piece from a company like Pro Components can make a huge amount of difference to any room.

Art, art and more art

You don't have to know your Monet from your Matisse to cover the walls of your home in art. The point of art is that it's personal. It's not about what's fashionable or what you're supposed to have on the walls. It's about what you like and what communicates something about who you are. Find art that you enjoy, not matter what it is, and display it proudly. You'll be able to add a ton of visual interest to your home. But most importantly, you'll be able to put a little bit of who you are out there for the whole world to see. Don't be put off by snobbishness or nasty attitudes. Your home should be your space. Forget what anyone else thinks and make it the most personal and enjoyable space you can.
